I know the Xerces Society put out a rare alert for a checkered butterfly. I remembered I took this photo of one and also saw more underneath the tall mints on our organic farm. Can you help me identify this one?
I’m including a few more that I’m unfamiliar with.
Thanks for your help.

Dear Jacqueline,
Your butterfly image did not attach.  We just posted a photo of this Prominent Moth,
Nadata oregonensis, from Seattle and we didn’t regognize it.  We got some assistance in its identification from our readership.  The final insect is a species of Crane Fly.
